ABC coverage that fateful day was 2nd to none. I thought Peter Jennings did an extraordinary job.

Presidential Security & Continuous Burning
Anne Compton calls Peter Jennings from Nebraska within the first minute of this segment:
Peter: What are you doing in Nebraska?
Anne: Well we didnt know where we were until we landed
He has disappeared down the rabbit hole an underground bunker to chair a National Security Council meeting via teleconference.
Peter: People in his (Bushs) entourage believe there has been a threat today to the highest political leadership in the country is that correct?
Anne: Well there was NO hint of ANY warning of the attacks that occurred on the East Coast today that is why he has come to as secure a place as he couldwe were literally told not to use cell phones so that our location could not be pinpointed
Bill Blakemore is reporting starting about 16 minutes into this segment. He mentions that firefighters were already becoming reorganized to determine how exactly they were going to tackle the task of search and rescue. Its incredible to watch the vast amount of black smoke pouring out of the location several hours after the collapse of the towers.
